The Red Chris mine is located 80 km south of Dease Lake and 18 km southeast of the village of Iskut. The mine operates year round. We utilize an air charter service for flights between Dease Lake airport and Richmond South Terminal, with designated marshalling points between. Our current workforce is 490 employees (35% First Nations; 16% female), with approximately 40% living in the surrounding northern communities. Most employees work a 2 week on/2 week off rotational schedule which can support a good work life balance. Employees live in camp during their shift, and are provided a private room, three meals a day and snacks. The camp has a commissary, recreation facility, games room, fitness room, TV room, areas for socializing, and public phones. Each room has satellite TV (48 channels) and Wi-Fi availability. The camp location and scenery in this remote area is truly remarkable.
The Red Chris camp and mine site maintains and enforces a zero tolerance for alcohol, drugs, verbal, physical abuse, or bullying. We are diligent in providing a safe work environment for all our employees.
